    A father of four, Lukman Soladoye has confessed before a Shari’a court sitting at Magajin Gari, Kaduna that he regularly beat his wife, Kemi Soladoye and their four children to correct them when they did something he considered wrong.

    He however said he loves his family and wanted the best for them.

    Soladoye confessed in reaction to the complaint of his wife through her counsel B.A Tanko that she had wanted a divorce due to the incessant assault but later changed her mind and settled with her husband.

    She prayed the court to caution the defendant to stop physically abusing her and their children.

    The judge Malam Isiyaku Abdulrahman asked the defendant if he would promise to stop beating his wife and children and the defendant said he would stop beating the wife not children.

    “If your wife does anything wrong to you, talk to her about it and show your displeasure; you are not supposed to beat your wife.

    “As for your children, beating is not the only way to correct a child; always show love and affection to your children, pray for them and advise them”, the judge advised.

    The judge said the court would continue to monitor the defendant’s behaviour and asked the complainant to report to the court if the defendant assaulted her again.
